    Lightweights for wheels. Amazing visibility! About $12-15. http://www.lightweights.org/

    I ran these on my old commuter and was impressed, even had drivers comment on them! Well worth it, even though they take a while to install.

    Also consider tires with reflective sidewall stripes when it's time for new tires. And if you don't mind putting reflective tape* on your frame, this stuff's quite good for that purpose: http://www.night-gear.com/reflexite-...cuity-tape-539

    Oh, and remember that reflectors do nothing without a light source that is (1) turned on, (2) near the viewer's eyes, and (3) aimed towards you. If you have a risk of people pulling out from side streets, for example, their headlights won't hit your reflective stuff until you're right in front of them. You might want to get some of these actively-lit SpokeLit wheel lights: http://www.rei.com/product/774213 I've heard good remarks about them.






    *Caution: reflective tape is habit-forming. It is easy to overdose on reflective tape. Know when to say when.
